energy cost grants programs that go to subsidize electricity bills in two states -- alaska and hawaii. alaska and hawaii. $5 million -- $5.9 million for the usda's economic impact initiative grants. now, the economic impact initiative grants have become slush funds for local governments to do such things as rehab an exercise room, renovate a museum on the pacific island of palau, and buy kitchen equipment for city government offices. now i'd like to talk a bit about defense spending. and this is probably the most painful part of my comments. and i will explain why later on. defense spending includes over $6 billion, $6 billion in unrequested or unauthorized funding for programs for the department of defense. at a time when the department of defense is facing the impact of sequestration on top of the $487 billion in cuts directed by the president, we can't afford to spend a single taxpayer dollar on programs that are not a priority for the defense department and our national security. the following things are beginning to happen now that the department of defense is under sequestration
to the unfair and inaccurate attack on a clean energy company that's located in my home state of nevada. the republican proposal refers to the solar reserve project as an ill-fate adventure. had he done his home work, budget committee chairman ryan would have discovered that this cutting edge solar project is not ill-fated but instead has long-term contract with our state's largest utility, it has created 450 good-paying jobs for nevadans and it's running on schedule and underbudget. the assertions being made in the republican budget undermine the success of renewable energy programs, the jobs they create and the investment they represent and our nation's future energy needs. in las vegas and across the country, americans have made it clear that our budget should be a path forward for a strong middle class and serious investment in the next generation of americans. let's reject these mathematical gimmicks and unstub staveragiated attacks and -- unsubstantiated attacks and get to work on a real budget. thank you and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlem
cannot control are the costs of health care and the cost of energy. we can control the impact on reforming the cost of health care through obamacare. now, why do i say that? first of all, if you don't have it, you get sick, you go to the emergency room. you go to the emergency room. do you know what the average cost of an emergency room visit is? $1,000. do you know what a primary care doctor gets? 40d. now, what is wrong with that picture? 40d, not $400 by the time -- time -- $40, not $400 by the time all of it is taken out. i want to bring to your attention a fantastic documentary that was on cnn on sunday night. it was called saving the fire or rushing through the fire. it was a complete two-hour documentary from cnn. not some lefty think tank or nothing like the institute of medicine. this was a cnn documentary on the cost of health care and how the system that we have now increases cost but does not increase or improve health comps. i'm not going to argue all those dynamics here today, but if we really want to lower the cost of health care, we want to have president obama
in the area of domestic energy production that will lead to more jobs, that will lead to more energy independence for america. these are the kinds of things that we look to in april, mr. speaker, and i would tell the gentleman again, look forward to working with him in an open process, in a bipartisan fashion. i yield back. mr. hoyer: i thank the gentleman. now, we'll be ending now, but i know you have an extraordinarily able assistant sitting to your right who advises you on issues of great importance to our country. the gentleman to my right does the same thing for me. the gentleman to my right went to wake forest. maryland played wake forest last night. and i hope as we play duke tonight that we are equally successful, mr. nevins, who is a graduate of duke, it will be a little tougher game than wake forest, i understand, but we look forward to trying to be successful in that effort. kyle nevins is a wonderful member of the majority leader's staff. he worked for my dear and close friend, roy blunt, for some period of time, and he began working for mr. cantor in 2008 as his floor di
... but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me. [ male announcer ] today, men with low t have androgel 1.62% (testosterone gel). the #1 prescribed topical testosterone replacement therapy, increases testosterone when used daily. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or signs in a woman, which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are or may become pregnant or are breastfeeding, should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged prostate, possible increased risk of prostate cancer, lower sperm count, swelling of ankles, feet, or body, enlarged or painful breasts, problems breathing during sleep, and blood cl
of the energy from the party now? who won the c-pac straw poll, rand paul not an establishment republican, a person from the libertarian wing of the party. they are not together on some of the mechanical things. the report recommends going to primaries as opposed to caucuses and conventions because that's a broader electorate. well, caucuses and conventions are the way somebody like a rand paul or even a rick santorum is going to be able to be a real competitor for the nomination. >> ifill: it talks about cutting in half the number of primary debates. a little bit of the early season cannibalization doesn't occur. >> we see this after party loses a presidential race or two. >> whatever they did last time. they try to do something else. but i think the problem for the r.n.c. is this. our politics and our lives, our world, has changed. we're no longer... politics is no longer dominated by the hierarchical national parties that 40, 50 years ago could dictate who can run for office and when to have conventions and raise the money. you have all these other sources of power and influence, wheth
finish on this. if we are interested in r&d as we indicated, clean energy, slashed. having an impact on the quality of life of families raising children. what about nutrition assistance? snap programs. what an obliterating cut to the snap program which is now serving 48 million people. let me remind my colleagues that these are military personsing women in the military, these are young families, these are individuals who are in school, and so women are disproportionately impacted and this, i think, is clearly one of the largest conflicts of reason and that is to underfund or take away the funding for the affordable care act that has been reaffirmed by the united states supreme court and has been documented as having a health care savings and providing for healthier america and here we are taking away coverage from 27 million americans. mrs. maloney: they took a-- they take away the good aspects of it, the preventive and health care they propose to eliminate that but keep the tax savings from it to balance their budget. it is a hoax. it's not realistic. it's not true. and i really app
, the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put america back to work. the president doesn't. but i hope these kinds of discussions can continue -- >> stephanie: that made no sense at all. >> we need more oil spills and more dead poor people. but it was a good start. >> stephanie: how it is a good start. the boner one more time. >> i thought we had a very candid and frank exchange of ideas, and frankly i think it was productive. >> frankly. productive. as long as we get rid of more tax cuts for orange rich people. >> stephanie: margaret in texas. hello margaret? okay. scott in massachusetts. she was enjoying the show at least. hello, scott. >> caller: hi, stephanie. i love the show. i'm so glad to find it. i'm glad you are not talking to the pope so much -- >> stephanie: are you eggs me on. don't make me do it, scott. >> caller: i'm not going to troll either way on that one, but i just wanted to say when i was growing up i finally talked catholic friend of mine who was a little bit older, and he explained to me that the catholic church does not allow cont
. the president does not. we want to unlock our energy resources to put more americans back to work. the president does not. having said that, today was a good start. i hope that these kind of discussions can continue even though we have very real deficits, our job is to find common ground to do the work of the american people sent us here to do. host: speaker boehner reflecting on the republicans meeting with the president yesterday. bob is our next caller in minnesota, a democrat. caller: thanks for taking my call. the biggest problem is the health care, which is the biggest drain as far as unnecessary and wasteful spending. the only way to fix that is to eliminate the insurance companies. the insurance companies don't contribute anything to the medical profession. they don't even put a band-aid on you. all they do is take money. if you cannot see the fact that the single payer system is a better way than what we are doing now, then you are just missing it. as far as social security, social security is not doing anything bad. it is self sustaining. if they need to make any changes to social secu
in florida, balancing the budget and that's what we need to do. he focused on energy, on food and technology, on the policy that is the liberals have that are stifling those issues and we need to look at republican policies that help support some of the greatest things that we have in this country, and that will make us a better country. >> the difference is that where jeb bush was governor, democrats wanted to work with him because they saw him as a good guy and someone that could show leadership for floridians. that's the problem in washington. we have a situation where republicans don't want this president to be successful, and you look at just the job numbers that just came out last month. 230,000 jobs being created. the republicans had nothing positive to say about this. so at some point you have to put party aside and put the country forward and move the country forward. it can't be about core convictions or about the republicans or democrats. it's about america at some point and moving this country in the right direction. >> all right. well, i'm going to let that be the last word. ali
